Police were searching Thursday for a hit-and-run driver who killed a Fontana man after hitting him and dragging him down a highway.

The deadly hit-and-run occurred Wednesday night on Arrow Highway near the Fontana Gardens apartment complex, officials said.

The 61-year-old victim lived in the apartment complex and was attempting to cross the street, KTLA reported.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the man was dragged 150 feet before the car temporarily came to a halt, releasing him. The champagne-colored Lincoln Navigator continued on soon after, police said.
